Nestled amongst lush palm-trees and shrubbery, the three-bedroom Villa Laurette presents a luxuriously modern, beachfront getaway on the beautiful island of Barbados. Relax in style and comfort, as you escape the mundane and have yourself a fun-filled yet tranquil escape in one of the most picturesque places in the world!

Villa Laurette is an outstandingly unique place to call home whilst in Barbados. Traditional colonial architecture vamped up with use of stone-bricks, houses elegant and airy rooms, brought to life with light and cool colours throughout its finish. Modern design and décor help add to the contemporary ambience in the home and make lounging, relaxing or having fun feel that much more deluxe!

A turquoise theme, similar to the shade of the sea, runs throughout the house. The pillows of the same colour sit delightfully on sofas and cushioned seats, where you can gather together for lovely and intimate evenings, complemented by television and views and breezes from outside through patio doors. The kitchen, includes the same colour scheme, emboldening the pattern against the neutral stone-brick. Barbados offers tropical fruits and produce that has been blessed by the abundance of sunlight and enriching waters of the Atlantic Ocean, so make sure you make the most of your time here by preparing a feast in the kitchen. Fully-equipped you can prepare anything you want to produce an unforgettable meal! Just make sure they remember it for the right reasons!

Guests have the choice of three bedrooms across the villa, offering air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms for your rest, relief and recovery throughout your stay! Bedrooms have been given ridiculous amounts of space, meaning there is even further seating and tables within each room, so you may find it hard to find a reason to leave the comfort of the quarters! The two bedrooms upstairs offer a King-size bed in one and twin singles in the other bedroom and the bedroom downstairs offers a King-size bed. Guests can keep fit in the exercise room upstairs or kick back with food and cocktails on sun-beds or the table and chairs on the balcony, overlooking the pool and providing awe-inspiring views of the sea!

The patio has been constructed with leisure in mind featuring a darling alfresco dining table and chairs as well as cushioned seating, under the shade of the roof and ceiling fans! As your barbecue feast is prepared in the outdoor grill and kitchenette area, sip cocktails from the solace of sun-loungers or enjoy splashing in the outdoor pool. After dining at the wet-bar, you can get right into the sea, as the villa sits on the beach!

About the Island & Getting There

About Barbados

At first glance you could be mistaken for thinking that Barbados is purely a beach holiday destination, but you're urged to reconsider this common belief. The island of Barbados is peppered with astonishing landscapes (both coastal and inland), enchanting locals, sublime cuisine, intriguing rums, fascinating wildlife, symbolic architecture and a selection of striking holiday villas.

Delve deep into the history of the island and start your holiday by visiting Sunbury Plantation House & Museum. This former plantation was built in 1660's and the premises are scattered with antiquities that delicately detail a recent history of Barbados. St. Nicholas Abbey also provides an insightful representation of Sugarcane production, Bajan artefacts and a wonderful observation point at Cherry Tree Hill. If you’re keen to visit one of the oldest Parliamentary buildings within the Commonwealth and appreciate the democratic legacy of Barbados, drop by The Parliament Buildings. This neo-gothic congress can be found in Bridgetown and act as a representation of Barbados’s Independence. There is so much history present throughout the island and as a result, Bridgetown and its Garrison has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, which the locals are very proud of.

Great efforts have been made to persevere the natural beauty of Barbados, so if you’re drawn to the exploration of National Parks and multicoloured gardens, it won’t take you long to realise that Barbados is a haven for such paradises! Within the Andromeda Botanic Gardens, Farley Hill National Park, Flower Forest, Hunte's Gardens and Welchman Hall Gully - visitors, and Botanist alike, will be lost for hours admiring these astonishing botanical parklands. Keep an eye out for the Dwarf Poinciana, or Peacock Flower…it’s the national flower of Barbados.

Bajan’s take their food very seriously! If you and your fellow travellers are enticed by the gastronomic aspect of holidaying, we believe you’ve selected the right island. With every aspect of cookery mastered; from pickling to freshly prepared dishes, sweet & savoury, fragrant & spicy and of course, the bountiful choice of seafood. Check out the food stalls in Paynes Bay Church – where vendors exhibit locally made dishes & street food that will scintillate the taste buds. At the end of every working week, locals and tourists both flock to Oistins, for 'Fish Fry Day'. This is a must for those who haven’t undergone the experience! The evening starts with barbecues and then ascends into a joyful party. This caps off a busy few days of work for locals as well as the 'strains' associated with serious holidaying.

Barbados is of course iconic for its Beaches & Rum…so why not bring them together? You will have to go out of your way not to be able to find a beach bar along the west coast of the island, as well as the countless Rum Shops. Yes, you’ve read correctly, Rum Shops! These small and locally run businesses embrace the Bajan spice of life, in liquid form. Very delicious! If you’re searching for something a little more special, take a trip to the east coast and visit Sand Dunes Bar and Restaurant at Windy Hill, for an unforgettable experience.

Barbados is a distinct and striking part of the Caribbean. It’s a great fit for all types of travellers, as the island really does have it all. For a little more information about this delightful island, check out our guide to a remarkable stay!

Villa Laurette ensures that kids enjoy the elegance and tropical vibes that the home brings. Cosy and contemporary, several areas help for lounging and relaxation sessions, with the family or alone with a book and breath-taking views across the sea on the upper balcony and sun-beds. Wi-fi means that if you are bored with the television, you can surf your devices or upload your holiday snaps instantly! Two bedrooms with king-size beds and a room with twin singles make for the place of rest for families of up to six. All rooms en-suite and air-conditioned taking away the stress of sorting out who sleeps where.

To ensure that adults can unwind and chill-out with the sense of freedom only reserved for children, Villa Laurette provides a housekeeper, a maid and a chef, who serves three meals a day, so you can kick back and let go of your worries and stresses! Take this to the next level with lazy days on the sun-lounger with drinks or splash with the children in the outdoor pool!

Because you are situated just steps from the beach, spend a day of fun in the sun within walking distance. Quiet and affording enough room for families to have their own space, you can settle down on the softness of the sugary white grains of sand or hired sun-beds and deck chairs. Nearby several vendors offer refreshments to keep everybody satisfied and sorted. The sea here is as beautiful as it gets, with its surface temperatures similar to bath degrees and is gentle and calm, so everybody from the new-borns to the grandparents and even the non-swimmers can have a splash at its shores. Anybody who can swim has opportunities to snorkel in the amazing waters and witness the gorgeous coral reef that surrounds the island, as well as marine animals. If you are patient and lucky enough you may even get to glimpse a rare sea turtle! Older teens and adults can scuba -dive to truly get up close and personal with the scenes beneath the waves or try to hang on as they jet-ski and water-ski across the Atlantic Ocean!

Restaurants and bars will keep you and the kids satisfied, serving both native dishes and international cuisines across the coast and in the town! You can purchase souvenirs and goods to take back from Barbados with you or groceries to prepare and store in the villa. Treat children to the wonders of nature in limestone caves, gardens and plantation houses and boat tours!
